Style File: Inside the Royal Wardrobe of HH Sheikha Mozah

Her Royal Highness Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned (mother of Qatar’s current Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani) captures the essence of elegance through her colossal wardrobe of designer silhouettes. The chairperson of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development plays a key role in spearheading social reform, women empowerment, and education in Qatar and beyond the nation’s borders – all while being impeccably dressed. Whether attending to royal duties or state visits, Sheikha Mozah makes major fashion moves in demure designs that she coordinates with her signature hijab turban. Her polished ensembles are often custom-made to reflect her modest aesthetic, by renowned couture houses such as Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, and Valentino. On past occasions she’s donned a chartreuse kaftan by Jean Paul Gaultier and a powder blue suit from Armani Privé. Her gravitation towards a saturated palette and creations featuring rich details that she elevates with dazzling jewelry from the likes of Harry Winston and David Webb solidifies her status as a style icon. Here, we trace Sheikha Mozah’s inspiring fashion moments.
